In conversation with Puneet Kapoor: A career in finance and pursuing a MBA

In this YouTube episode, we invited Puneet Kapoor, VP / MBS Trader to talk about a career in finance, pursuing a MBA and choosing a specialty.

Puneet went to the prestigious IIT-Delhi for an engineering degree and to Cornell University for a MBA. He has worked with companies such as Bear Stearns, Millennium Partners and is currently at Capital Group in Los Angeles.

In this conversation that is geared toward students wanting to work in finance, he answers three questions:

  1. What was it like to make a switch from engineering to finance?

  2. What are the different areas of finance that a student can pursue?

  3. What is one advice you would give a student looking for a job or internship in finance?

If you have further questions, please get in touch and we will connect you with Mr. Kapoor.
